Inside the Coolest Backyard in Golf
Thursday, September 15, 2016

You have a million dollars to spend on a piece of property: why not make it an Irish golf estate with a private, nine-hole backyard golf course?

This charming four bedroom property, which boasts marble fireplaces, wet and dry saunas, a massage plinth and fitness room, Canadian maple units in the kitchen and dining room and a sunroom dubbed the "19th hole" (complete with home-grown grape vines to fill the 1,000 bottle wine cellar) is on the market for approximately $1.16 million.

And then there's the backyard.

The par-3 course, named "Cuan Na Mara" which means "Haven by the Sea" in Gaelic, has nine holes, 18 tee boxes, bunkers, a lake and fully drained sand greens over 8.5 acres. The course is 2,488 yards from the tips; 2,355 from the forward tees.

The future owner of the house is also just a two-hour drive from Dublin, enjoying both the comforts of the country (club) and the city in Ferrybank, Ireland.

Dave Pelz, are you jealous?
